Pedal For Hope

posted in: Home Page News | 0

Dear Tiger Families

This year FTPS is proud to be a supporter of the 2021 virtual Pedal for Help (Cops for Cancer) campaign! The fundraising campaign starts now and runs until May 7th!

What is Pedal for Hope?

The Pedal For Hope team is comprised of five police services in the Peterborough and Durham areas. Over the past 17 years they have partnered with local schools to raise over $5 million to support pediatric cancer research and the newly launched Pediatric Family Counselling Service. During non-COVID years they are on their bikes riding from school to school for a 3 week period. Schools raise funds through head shaves, hair cuts, and various school fundraising activities.

How can you participate?

  1. Fundraising: Our school wide goal is to raise $900! Each class has set their own goals and chosen their reward for reaching that goal. To make your donations online please follow these directions:

Go to www.cancer.ca/pedalforhope and click on donate.  Select donate to a team. Search for our school team- FTPS Tigers. Click the yellow Donate Now! button. You can choose your own custom amount to donate.

Please let your classroom teacher know if you’ve donated online. Each class will be keeping track!   Thank you!  Every little bit helps!

  • Shave your head or cut your hair: All participants who shave or cut their hair and raise funds will have a Pedal for Hope hat delivered to our school! Remember to send before and after photos to your child’s teacher!

Thanks for your support!

Your FTPS Family
